re immigration reform: Is Marco Rubio becoming a dissembling, thin-skinned, over-exposed loser? Byron York observes the metamorphosis of Marco Rubio on immigration from border security stalwart to a flip-flopper who now wants amnesty first border security later, and who objects to being called a flip-flopper or #sellout. York puts it perfectly: Rubio: "We need to legalize immigrants so they can pay for border security"

Hmm-m... interesting. 
Out of curiosity I checked @marcorubio and he hasn't tweeted ANYTHING about immigration in well over a month. No tell-tale sign of his flip-flopping!

Immigration fight revolves around security question

There's a fundamental conflict at the heart of the Senate debate over the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill. Most Republicans believe a policy to integrate 11 million currently illegal immigrants into American society must be conditioned on stronger border security and internal enforcement. Most Democrats don't. At bottom, that's what the fight is about.
Most Republicans believe security must come before integration, in one of two ways. Some believe enhanced security must be in place -- not a plan, but a reality -- before the 11 million can be granted temporary legal status.

Rubio: We need to legalize immigrants so they can pay for border security

Why is it necessary to legalize the roughly 11 million currently-illegal immigrants in the U.S. before newly enhanced border security and internal enforcement measures are in place? Sen. Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Senate’s Gang of Eight, says part of the reason is that the federal government can’t afford to secure the border on its own and needs financial help from the immigrants themselves, in the form of fines paid when they are legalized.
Rubio made the statement during a radio interview after he voted against an amendment from Republican Sen. Charles Grassley that would have put off legalization until after the border is secure — a position supported by majorities of voters across the political spectrum.
